Edit: Addition to my previous post: I wouldn't worry to much about the pestering, unlike livebearers where the male is constantly trying to inseminate the female, with egg scatterers, the female is more in control and it goes in a cycle, when she is ready to release & scatter the eggs, the male/s will follow and fertilise the eggs. There may be some courtship display, coaxing the female into being interested, males will display dominance to other males, but the female doesn't experience harassment/stress like female livebearers go through ime/imo.
